    Hi Everyone,

    I bought a wormer for poultry from aristopet:

    I have 4 chicks (hatched: 16 November) and I was wondering whether I have to deworm them too or if I just need to deworms my adult flock (they are not 1 yet)... I would also appreciate ips and your experiences when you worm your chickens since this is my first time! Is aristopet a good poultry wormer, is it more affective then natural wormers such as garlic? Any answers or comments are appreciated!!

    Thank you in advance :)

    Personally I would not de-worm chicks that young unless there has been a test performed confirming the presence of worms.

    It is best to have a fecal float test performed by your vet to see if your chickens have any worms.
